HOT DAMN, what is it about this series that keeps me crawling back on my hands and knees for more? I am back with more Resident Evil game news but this time I’m talking Resident Evil 8.
“What? Resident Evil 8? But RE7 just came out and all of the DLC’s haven’t even been released!” While that is true, development on the eighth installment has already begun, and Jun Takeuchi, an executive producer of RE7, gave fans a little insight on the upcoming game.
According to GameRant and the video Capcom posted on Youtube, Takeuchi had this to say:
“We want [Resident Evil 7] to be the start of a new kind of survival horror and of a new series. We’re already thinking of various plans for the next game, but we also want to see how we can continue to evolve survival-horror itself.”
Watch the full video below of the interview with Takeuchi.
What does this mean for the franchise? Well, according to the video, it looks like Resident Evil 8 will maintain the true survival horror feel, most likely in a first-person view. It will have a character overcoming a crisis, as that is a common RE theme. However, Takeuchi also mentioned that the new installment will be “very different in some ways” to the most recent game released.
With VR improving and consoles updating and Capcom determined to keep the experience as realistic as possible, who knows what the next installment will hold.
It’s going to be a long while before we know anything about the next game, but this little taste of information is enough to keep RE fans ravenous and waiting for more.
Check out the other three “Making Of” videos on the Resident Evil Youtube channel and stay tuned with iHorror. As soon as we hear news of the next game, we will let you know.
